I must admit that I've never liked these short 'Taotie'.
Especially on polychrome enamelled porcelain bottles
of a stylised shield shape [very wide shoulders tapering inward,
then flaring outward a bit and finally tapering inward toward the raised foot rim].
I've always thought them late 19th C.

I still don't like them, but this Agate/Chalcedony bottle is more pleasing
than the porcelain examples, in my opinion.
